New Hydro Poles

Sid Grabell Contacting replaced 2 hydro poles for a customer. The first pole was complex as the pole needed to be lifted between two conductors. Marty is the ground guy monitoring the pole as it is being lifted with our Digger Derrek Truck with Tracy at the Controls. Sid is in our Single bucket truck monitoring the placement between the poles.

Motor Control Center

Andy installed a bucket into a warehouse Motor Control Center for a customer. Safety is Sid Grabell Contracting’s number one priority when completing any job. This type of work requires specialized personal protective equipment that includes an arc flash suit, specialized head covering, hard hat, full face cover and gloves. Safety- It’s a full time job
